          Tyler Perry: Anger to Forgiveness

          February 20, 2009

          Dysfunctional families are often the punch lines of movies and sitcoms, but for some households, dealing with fighting, anger and turmoil is no laughing matter. Tyler Perry says he knows about this issue firsthand. The renowned writer/actor/director/producer has publicly spoken out about growing up in a family where rage turned into physical abuse.

           

          A Self-Made Man

          In 1998, as a struggling playwright, Tyler Perry began selling out crowds with his musicals and eventually achieved commercial success in both theater and film. His most famous persona, Madea, returns to the big screen in Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail, in which Dr. Phil has a cameo.

          “Forgiveness has been a major part of my growth in life”
